Rural Health Network Development Planning Grant Program

Posted by on November 16th, 2016 Posted in: Rural, Scholarships and Grants


The HHS HRSA Federal Office of Rural Health Policy has opened applications for the Rural Health Network Development Planning Grant Program (“Network Planning”). The purpose of the Network Planning program is to assist in the development of an integrated health care network, specifically for entities that do not have a history of formal collaborative efforts. The Network Planning program promotes the planning and development of healthcare networks in order to: (i) achieve efficiencies; (ii) expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of essential health care services; and (iii) strengthen the rural health care system as a whole. The goals of the Network Planning program are centered around approaches that will aid providers in better serving their communities given the changes taking place in health care, as providers move from focusing on the volume of services to focusing on the value of services. The program will support one year of planning with the primary goal of helping networks create a foundation for their infrastructure and focusing member efforts to address important regional or local community health needs.

Application due January 3, 2017.

Technical Assistance webinar: December 13, 2016 2 to 3pm EST
